Re: [tim-janik/beast] Hydrogen import (#41)

Basically, liquidsfz tries to transparently load hydrogens xml format, and turns its xml content into .sfz opcodes. For instance if you use

$ liquidsfz /usr/share/hydrogen/data/drumkits/GMRockKit/drumkit.xml

you can use the hydrogen GMRockKit in liquidsfz. This works because a lot of what the python script has implemented for bsewave files is now also done (even somewhat more correctly as far as I remember) by

So as soon as Anklang has liquidsfz support, we also have most of what this bug report is about supported in Anklang.

What this doesn't do is

(which all could be done by Anklang)

It is also somewhat limited in terms of what hydrogen features are supported, but if we need more, we could improve the liquidsfz importer. In cases where there is no corresponding sfz opcode, we could invent our own private opcodes (i.e. liquidsfz_foo_bar=bazz for a hydrogen foo_bar=bazz feature). In these cases liquidsfz bugs could be filed.

Finally one problem here is that we don't split each drum into its own stereo bus. So you cannot for instance place a reverb on the base drum, but a different effect on the snare, as you only get a mixdown from liquidsfz which contains all drums. This is ok for a start, but suboptimal, but in theory we can implement it by extending the importer and adding new either public or private API to liquidsfz to support splitting its output in more stereo channels. Its a somewhat advanced feature though, and we probably can ignore it for now.
